I don't even know what to say about this show. It was a lot of fun, and I feel like it went through some strange waves. I used some video game music sparingly, and I tried to have a carefree attitude about the types of genres I pick. Usually I try to pick one thing from most of the genres, but today I felt a bit glued to the electronica and rock. Honestly, I think it turned out to be a good show though, but tell me what you think.
One thing I absolutely loved was a moment of layering where I was playing the "Cave" song from Skyward Sword, a song from Niellerade, and the Robert Lax recording. Truthfully, even if a layering is good, sometimes it doesn't affect me, because it still seems like separate components. This layering in this show though was a moment I want to bottle. It was a feeling like I could close my eyes and, instead of being at WCBN, I would be in a cave, with a God-like voice echoing off the walls to speak to me. That moment in freeform radio when you are transported to a different country, continent, universe, is what I live for.
Also, because I am in love with Regina Spektor, I want to share more of her with you with this article by NPR along with her new album streaming for free.

The Attack of Everything:
- Cave Layer: It's worth saying again that I loved creating this for you.
- Emil and the Detectives pt. 2: I had a request from a listener last week that I play the other side of this vinyl, and I'm really glad I did! I had a lot of fun figuring out what to layer with it!
- Chica and the Folder: This was a very pleasant surprise. Me-effing-gusta.
- Extra long set: The DJ after me tends to come late pretty regularly, which is why this set in particular is pretty long. I think he might have come in the middle of the last song, but I've been setting long songs so that I can pack up and go.
- Glitches: And by glitches I mean me accidentally playing the second song on a vinyl when I didn't catch it in time. Womp womp. This happened a few times. Precision was not the name of the game tonight, folks.
- Too much electronica?: Now I'm wondering whether that was too much...it's ok.
